When the going gets tough, the Her World team turns to their favourite things to cheer them up.
“I still reminisce about the absolute peace I felt when I hiked up to the top of this mountain range in Grampians National Park in Melbourne – every single care in the world just disappeared.” – Alyssa Dhaliwal, writer at www.herworldplus.com.
“I love hanging out at Old School Delights along Upper Thomson Road, which is decked out like a classroom and sells childhood memorabilia such as old-school games and biscuits. It also serves delicious local cuisine – think mee siam and nasi lemak – that tastes exactly like my grandmother’s cooking!” – Charmaine Lee, beauty writer.
“Ice cream. On bad days, it’s a cool salve for frazzled nerves. With each lick, stress melts away and bliss settles in.” – Jeanne Tai, associate deputy editor.
“I love it when pasar malams pop up in my neighbourhood. I always make it a point to go so I can indulge in some hearty grub (like the Ramly burger!) and soak up the atmosphere.” – Cheryl Tang, intern.
“Ronin has always been my favourite brunch place. The chefs there make simple dishes such as scrambled eggs and sourdough toast taste so good!” – Cheng Jeeyan, writer at www.herworldplus.com.
“Every weekend, I head to Starbucks at Parkland Green (at East Coast) with my silky terrier Max, where he gets to meet and play with other pups at the outdoor seating area. It’s as much my favourite hang-out spot as it is his!” – Aretha Loh, features writer.
